JSNA - Long Term Conditions and Mortality

Long term conditions otherwise known as chronic diseases are conditions for which there is no cure but can be managed with medication or other therapies.  Examples include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  In Birmingham we want to help people with long term conditions live healthily and independently.

 

Each year thousands of people die prematurely from conditions amenable to treatment. Years of Life Lost is a measure of premature mortality.
